Albion Teacher Wins ‘Teacher Who Does It Better’ Contest

A teacher at Albion Middle School drove away with the grand prize in the Burt Brothers Tire & Service “The Teacher Who Does It Better” contest. And here is what Amy Olsen won: A two-year prepaid lease on a shiny 2010 Nissan Rogue and a $1,000 Visa card for classroom supplies.

In addition, Olsen, who has worked at Albion Middle for eight years, will receive free routine maintenance on the vehicle, including oil changes and tire rotation, all courtesy of the contest organizers.

Olsen was surprised Tuesday with the vehicle and Visa card. Students and faculty anxiously awaited her arrival at the cafeteria, where they were gathered to announce her win. Band students trumpeted her entrance; others held sign congratulating her on being chosen to receive the top prize.  

“I am thrilled. I am so excited,” Olsen said after she was presented with the gifts in front of the cheering student body and faculty. “You guys are my strong point, the reason why I strive to be a good teacher.”

In the tradition of “American Idol” and “Dancing With The Stars,” the public was asked to vote for the teacher who has gone above and beyond the call of classroom duty. Contest organizers say the vote tally played a big part in determining which teachers received the first, second and third prizes.

The giveaway was organized by Burt Brothers; KSL Newsradio; FM 100.3; Utah’s Classic 103.5 The Arrow, and KSL-TV Channel 5.

Lucie Chamberlain

Alta View Elementary

If a movie about super teachers were ever made, Lucie Chamberlain would be a prime candidate for a leading role. Fortunately for her kindergarten students at Alta View Elementary, she already thrives in a supporting role for them. Parents thank her for being a “super teacher.” She is also described as an “amazing colleague.” Whether students need help in the classroom or from home while sick, Lucie goes above and beyond to help them learn, overcome fears, and feel important and cared for. Lucie is the reason a number of kids went from hating school to loving it, according to parents. The way she exudes patience, sweetness, positive energy, and love for her students with special needs melts is appreciated and admired. One parent noted: “Both my kids wish she could be their teacher forever.” Another added:  “She treats every student like their learning and their feelings are her priority.” Super teacher, indeed!
